VLOG: Achada Do Teixera to Pico Ruivo

Rather than take photos the kids and I decided to vlog our hike from Achada do Teixera to Pico Ruivo. Vlog below.

PR 1.2 Teixera to Pico Ruivo

All of Madeira’s hike are categorised into numbers which makes it pretty simple to follow signposts and not get lost!

This hike, PR1.2, is really, really easy and especially so in comparison to our 15km hike from Pico Arieiro to Pico Ruivo! The only problem was the wind, the cloud and the visibility.

The weather at Teixera

As we arrived in the car park, there were other hikers all sat in their cars waiting for the wind and thick cloud coverage to pass.

After 10 minutes of waiting patiently, I think we were fairly sure it wasn’t going to pass until we got higher up (and even then it didn’t) so we decided to brave the winds and complete the walk regardless. I wasn’t amazingly popular with my kids, who thought it was a stupid idea to walk in the cold but they did it anyway!

According to LiveTrekker we walked 5.5km in 1hr54.
